PSSI held a second roundtable on Russia’s influence activities in Budapest

06.04.2017

On April 5, PSSI and CEID co-organized a closed-door roundtable that presented preliminary findings from two ongoing projects – “The Development of Economic Relations Between V4 and Russia: Before and After Ukraine” and “Raising Awareness of Russian Soft Power in Central Europe“.

The event provided a unique opportunity to discuss both projects in greater detail and gather important insights from local representatives. It was attended by government officials, journalists, diplomatic staff and representatives of academia.

In late February, PSSI and SFPA organized a similar event in Bratislava. Summaries from both sessions are available.

Summaries from Budapest will soon follow.
